Illustrations from the month of June! As you can probably tell, the theme was Demons and I had just as much fun as I thought I was going to. If I could draw spooky demons every month for the rest of my life I would be a happy artist…
Each image has some element of trying to push myself and try new things. Painting, for one of them, as well as playing with animation in an illustration. The two more regular illustrations I tried to incorporate more detail than I usually do, particularly with the background of the final illustration for the month. It was more fun than I thought it would be, as I have a tendency to want to finish things as fast as possible and get frustrated at doing a lot of fiddly bits that aren’t the main focus. But I’m learning! And next month the theme is Angels, so I’m sure I’ll get to test out my colour palette beyond Everything Is A Variation on Black, Red and Muddy Neutrals.
In other news, I have an official commission price list for my cartoon/comic-style illustrations and paintings! It’s up at my newly-revamped sketchblog, so you can go to this link and see if there’s anything you’d like! (Caveat: I am away from the 7th to about the 14th with family things, so any messages in that time won’t get a reply until I’m back). Hit me up via my email, or Twitter, or Tumblr or Facebook and I will Draw You Things For Money.
First new daily challenge of the year, and the theme was Monster Boys, as kind of a throwback to the first proper themed month I did last year. This year with my dailies I’m trying to challenge myself to draw more things that I don’t draw much of – like boys, and more than one person in a drawing together, and colouring things. You know. Complicated stuff.
Anyway, this was a ton of fun, and I’m super excited for the rest of the years themes. As always, if you want to see these early, as well as occasional WIP’s of other projects, be sure to follow my sketch blog over on tumblr. February’s theme is Romance, so prepare yourself for some disgusting cuteness.
